Deathrattle Podcast After fourty years of listening to metal music of various levels of depravity, I like to think that I know a little bit about the genre. However I had these down as a punk/anarchic band so ignored them. Fortunately now rectified. Think ESOTERIC/ CORRUPTED but with added hatred and malevolence

Track Name: Sanctimonious Ejection Chamber
Self inflicted pain, scars are etched within, drive the fear deeper, catatonic slaves
Your depreciation, worth fades with each breath, aligned with religion, cancer to your soul
Erasing your past, obsessive decay, put before your needs, masochistic ways
Blind ones follow thee, binded to your mind, martyred for no purpose, enslaved now forever
Barren souls united from the numb depression, a dirge sung from dead hymns, slaves reach for the skies
Non Believers judged from those who preach love, few reject their feeble takes, the nihilistic front
Cast out from the flock, heretics burned mentally
Lost within yourself, turning to salvation, weakness it will live in your hollow shell
Belief without proof, spiritual damnation, submit to the voices from mankind's "messiah"
Your subservience to a higher being, created by human lies, greatest illusion of all
You are a slave, all your life, now you die, nothing left
Track Name: Masochistic Hate Surge
Transparent eyes glaze, sunken by deep depression, my life once had meaning
Creeping catatonia, emotions cut by razors, rusty blades etch my skin
Tears are now my offspring, scars from new cuts run deep, blood drains fast from my wounds
Pain is my religion, masochistic hate surge, curse this life that you gave
Soil is bloodsoaked, running down into the ground
My domain, crimson stained, caked around my feet
Expel liquid, each drop, what was once my precious blood
Suicide, transcend from my life, now silent
Body drained empty shell carrion for the flies
Rotting away organs bloat insects feast with voracity
Memories of life expurgated, removed from my soul
No gods are awaiting my tortured fate
Soul spews outwards from my body, reincarnate, wait for receival,
Distortion of their innocent minds, possessing all to take their own lives
Infection spreads, cancer from my will, depopulation, my madness in effect
Misanthropic, cathartic chaos, purging the earth, cleansed by my hatred
Tears are now your offspring, scars from new cuts run deep
Blood drains from your wounds, pain is your religion
Masochistic hate surge, curse this life that I gave

Curse this life that I gave,
Curse this life that I gave to you
